As we mentioned back in March, we were selected as one of the lucky 80 artists to take part in the Gromit Unleashed trail taking part this Summer. Last week we travelled to Bristol and painted our 5ft Gromit. It was a labour of love as we'd never done anything of this kind (or scale) before so it was an amazing experience and real learning curve for us. We painted the 5ft sculpture of the popular claymation series over a period of three days. It's now finished and will be laquered up to join the other 79 Gromits that will be lined the streets at popular locations in Bristol this summer (lets hope its a sunny one!).
Below are a few of the sneaky peeks of our work in progress as we're not allowed to reveal the whole finished piece until they're unveiled on the trail in July. We'll post more photos in July when its out in the wild! To find out more about the project and to visit the trail this summer check out the Gromit Unleashed website here.
